Done.


Paint is distributed with all copies of Window$. Why bother with PDF?


And what output options does Paint have ?

On an older OS, you might be limited to .bmp .

The SnippingTool defaults to .png on a save,
but appears to support some other options. I'm
pretty happy with .png , and can post-process
the capture from there (in GIMP).

My reminder was not about output formats, but the free, built-in
capabilities of Window$. Thank you.

FYI. The current version of Paint can output various flavors of .bmp
plus .jpg, .png, and .tiff. I don't know about .tiff, but .jpg has
been supported for a long time... at least back to Win7 and probably
XP.

Here are the options for Win98SE (my VM install).

I think .tiff was supported in Win 3.1, and .jpg and .gif

The advantage of .tiff is that it isn't "lossy", but that doesn't
matter when all you are doing is screen capture.

Windows 2000 Pro is the same. I don't have an ME VM.

And how long did it take them to do that???? OS X has had this for at
least 9 years. :-)

When was PDF introduced? Format became free in 1993. You need to
consider its patents and the business of Adobe!

I was able to print to pdf file in Office 2007 by using Microsoft's add-on.

Gosh, what a backwater OS and office-suite you are using, those are
always part of a proper OS and a proper office-suite, no need to install
shady third party plugins which may install backdoors for hackers to use.

Aw, Good Guy, I'm disappointed in you! You should know better in your
womb than to make assumptions.

My last regular use of Office is 2003. I only own 2007 because I got it
dirt cheap when I took a couple of college courses.

What's superior in the way of PDF printing in OS X in 2009 is you can
create a PDF file from any program. The program didn't need to have a
PDF export/save function. Could you do that with a Windows OS computer,
out of the box, no add-ons, in 2009?

Take the blinders off, my friend, and look at the world around you.
